Teach Cooperative Education

FY2021 is the last year for what is known as Cooperative Education - this is being replaced with "Workplace Experience" - more information to come!

Co-op teachers who have taken the two courses in cooperative instruction will be grandfathered in.

Southern Illinois University Carbondale - SIU will be offering the two Cooperative Education Courses for Summer 2021. Both courses are online and will run concurrently, beginning on June 7, 2021. Contact Ronda below or our office for the flyer and application.

Ronda Koch may be reached at if you have any questions.

Illinois State University - ISU is again offering their two Cooperative Education Courses for Summer 2021. These on-line courses are required by the Teacher of Record if a district wishes to receive CTE funding for student enrollment in their Coop class. As you are aware, ISU has an outstanding track record of graduating high quality Secondary teachers who are well equipped with lessons ready to teach on day one. These two courses provide the legality and lesson plans needed for Instructors teaching Cooperative Education at the Secondary level and are $184 less than our competitor. These courses run concurrently, with the first starting June 1st (BE 480); and the second starting June 21st (BE 482).

Interested teachers can register by visiting and follow the registration prompts. Feel free to contact our office if you have any registration questions. We can be reached at (309) 693-7373.

CANCELED: Eastern Illinois University - Co-op courses should be taught by CTE endorsed teachers or SVE teachers who have taken the two university courses on Cooperative Education Instruction as required by ISBE. See the below information on Summer 2020 courses:

Each class is 3 semester hours. Eastern's graduate tuition is $309 per semester hour. Additional information regarding the costs can be found at this webpage (

If you are interested in enrolling in the two courses, please complete the application process for graduate studies if you have not already been admitted to Eastern as a graduate student-- You are required to submit your transcripts as part of the process even if you are not planning to earn a master's degree, i.e. non-degree seeking.
